Elevation Undulating
Terrain Soft woodland paths & heath / some hard packed trails
Starting at the iconic Corfe Castle, you will leave the stone bridge and run down into the beautiful village of Corfe. You will head across Corfe common and towards the quaint village of Church Knowle, before heading up onto the ridge at Knowle Hill with sweeping views across Purbeck.
The Long and Middle routes then continue along the ridge to Stone Hill Down, before meandering through some tight single tracks towards the famous Blue Poole. The trails here are muddy and tight making the Darkness feel exhilarating. These sections of woodland and open heath are home to herds of Sika deer, so don't be alarmed if your head torch shines on lots of eyes watching you from the woodland.
Reach the finish for hot food and drink, fire pits for roasting marshmallows and a real festive vibe.
